What are your first impressions?
The landing page for PDFShift is very clean and professional looking. I enjoy the color pallete being used. The landing page also hits on the dot a lot of key elements: quick to get started, credibility with companies that use the product at top and customer reviews at bottom, try it for yourself is very high up in the user journey flow, metrics on how often used and support responsiveness, easy to integrate code snippet, highlighted features, and pricing.
What are the first actions you take?
First thing I do after reading through the landing page is to test it out myself. By default, the test has a wikipedia URL to convert to PDF. I test that out and it works as expected. Though, Wikipedia is pretty text based and somewhat easy to convert text to look decent in a PDF. I am more curious what it looks like with a site with more images, so I convert the homepage of That App Show. It looks pretty decent; though, emoji's don't show up... 😕
- Q3: What was your journey navigating the site like? Does the flow make sense?
Do you find the product desirable?
In the past, I've used services to convert to PDF. This service appears to have more developer customization available per the documentation section. The issue I've had in the past was that free converters took a lot of development to get right and the paid converters typically lacked customization capabilities.
What would you change about the website?
The website is really slick. The thing I'd change is to have a different default URL in the demo section. Wikipedia doesn't appeal to me that much for this type of conversion; I'd want to see something more graphical so I can see the power of the tool. In other words, pick an example that is tough to get right, and show off how you nail it!
